I already knew about a pride of lions, a shoal of fish, a school of whales, a murder of crows, a parliament of owls, herd of cows, elephants etc...as well as a bevy of ladies!!!
Any more that anyone can think of?? (how about a farage of fools?)
Shrewsbury still intrigues me. There are no less than three ways to pronounce it, plus the town's Roman name 'Salop' and its Welsh name 'Amwythig'.
